    When one is affected by the actions of others that one might either approve or disapprove of, what is sometimes more important is whether one has agreed to be subject to the actions of others. If one has so agreed, then one has consented. Consent is important in a society because often events occur that disadvantage us. Whether we are entitled to compensation depends on the degree of consent. One might agree to medical procedures that are designed to make life easier but pose risks of a poorer quality of life, or even death. However, in agreeing to those procedures, one is consenting to the risk of those actions.
